HealthLink Littauer is hosting its 21st annual Women’s Wellness Conference, “Images of a Woman,” on Wednesday, August 9 at the Holiday Inn, 308 N. Comrie Ave., Johnstown. Two sessions are being offered: noon to 2:30 p.m. and 6 to 8:30 p.m. This highly anticipated women’s conference has become a tradition in the community sharing good health for over 20 years.
HealthLink Littauer is pleased to present Arsyl De Jesus, M.D. as the keynote speaker for this special event. Dr. De Jesus is a radiation oncologist with New York Oncology Hematology in Amsterdam. She will be sharing a very candid point of view in her presentation – “Attitude of Gratitude: Confessions of an Oncology Doctor.”
“I am pleased to have this opportunity to share a most personal and poignant side of cancer and cancer care. As a radiation oncologist, I am faced with pain, suffering and negativity every day,” states Dr. De Jesus. “I believe that we can lift ourselves and others when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate an attitude of gratitude. I hope that by showing them how I cope with the challenges of caring for the sick, how I manage my day to day, I will be able to enlighten and inspire others.”
Included at the event will be various vendors, massage therapy, reflexology, raffles and a buffet style meal. Seats are still available for this highly-anticipated woman’s conference, but call now to secure your seat. Tickets are $35. You can reserve by visiting HealthLink Littauer at 2 Colonial Court in Johnstown or by calling (518) 736-1120.
